A Young Doctor's Notebook
Jon Hamm (Mad Men, Million Dollar Arm) and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, Kill Your Darlings) return for Season Two of A Young Doctor’s Notebook, the critically-acclaimed black comedy series based on the memoirs of a young doctor’s life in a remote village in early 20th century Russia.
Season Two picks up in 1935 with the older doctor returning to his former infirmary to collect the pieces of his shattered life. Reliving his battle with morphine addiction, and his doomed romantic choices, Hamm’s character watches his younger self struggle to survive against the backdrop of the Bolshevik Revolution. Based on a collection of short stories by celebrated Russian playwright Mikhail Bulgakov.
